What is the Cocurricular Involvement Transcript?
The Cocurricular Involvement Transcript is a record of your out-of-class activities during your time at Geneseo. The Transcript also gives you an opportunity to reflect and catalog the skills you have developed. Furthermore, it aids you in choosing activities and planning your time outside the classroom.

What are the benefits of the Cocurricular Involvement Transcript?
There is much more to college than just going to class. The Transcript is a way to organize cocurricular activities, add details about experiences (so you won't forget what you did as a Freshman and Sophomore for when you are a Senior), and evaluate what types of activities you have not yet taken part, but should to make yourself a well-rounded candidate. In addition, several undergraduate awards and scholarships highly recommend that the Transcript be submitted with an application. [back to top]

How do I create my Transcript?

You may make a copy of your unofficial Transcript at any time. You may want to make an unofficial working copy to use when you plan your class schedule with your advisor. You should use landscape rather than portrait when printing to make a neat and attractive presentation. Note: currently the Cocurricular Transcript is best viewd via the Internet Explorer web browser. [back to top]

How do I obtain an official copy of my Transcript?
You may obtain an official Transcript by sending an email request to matthews@geneseo.edu and asking for an official copy. Please allow a week for processing of the transcript. You may also wish to make your official Transcript a permanent part of your placement file in the Career Services office. Please note that this service is offered free-of-charge. [back to top]

What kinds of activities should be included?
The Cocurricular Involvement Transcript is divided into four categories for an easy overview and for you to see where you may need more experience. Keep in mind that activities can only be listed under one category. There are four categories to choose from: [back to top]

  1. Campus Organization Activities: includes membership in any group on campus or cocurricular activity (i.e. Resident Assistant, Greek organization, student organization officer, intramurals, etc.).
  2. Community Involvement: includes experiences that assist the larger community. These may be organized through Geneseo or initiated by the student (i.e. political campaign, Habitat for Humanity, volunteer, etc.).
  3. Professional or Educational Development: includes participation in workshops, education development (i.e. American Marketing Association, Kappa Delta Pi, Lamron photographer, etc.).
  4. Honors, Awards, Recognition: includes any formal recognition (i.e. Dean's List, scholarships, National Residence Hall Honorary, etc.).

Can I make changes on my Transcript?
Absolutely! If you want to list an activity under a different category or amend the Areas of Development you may do so by going to your account and clicking on the Edit Activity button. Your Transcript is meant to be a work in progress that you personalize throughout your time at Geneseo. [back to top]

When should I start my Transcript?
Start Now! It is easy to begin documenting and planning your journey through Geneseo. By starting now, you will make better decisions concerning how to utilize your time and you will not miss opportunities to expand your interests and experiences. [back to top]

Who should I identify that could verify my entries?
The verification for different activities varies according to the type of organization or activity. The following are acceptable sources:

  • Student Organization - the president of the organization
  • College committees or organizations - the faculty chairperson or advisor
  • Professional/Educational development experiences - supervisor, advisor or president
  • Community Services - official of the organization or agency

How do I use the Areas of Development List?
The Areas of Development are provided to help you determine areas of growth and to ensure comparable Transcripts among students. For each activity, you may choose up to three Areas of Development, which describe the personal skills you progressed in that activity. Simply list these areas of development on the Activity Report Form and they will appear on your Transcript. For more details and a list of descriptions for each of the available Areas, click here.
